Need 75K Hyatt Points. Plz DM
Anyone else exited from traditional litigation to do contract work? I’m currently a BigLaw associate attorney who is considering project contract work with Paragon for the work life balance. I would love to hear from anyone who has taken this path before and bonus points if you’ve worked for Paragon. Thanks!
Currently working on plan C of a honeymoon as we don’t expect to be able to go Europe in June/July as hoped. Plan A and B were variations of Italy (relax) and Spain (mountain biking). Hoping to use bonvoy points. Any US centered suggestions? Maybe refocusing on golf/warmth/spa/food now.
Family of 8 in the Group 1 line. Leaves the line and tries to board with Global Services. Gets denied. Appears they boarded with group 3 or 4. How does that happen?
I ended up in a heated discussion about something work related with a director and I did not let my guard down and made my points clear. I feel like he now has a grudge against me.
Should I fly American or Virgin from BOS to London next month? Timing and price are all the same. No status on either airline so I’m in economy. ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
Going to Cabo in April with my husband! Looking to do more adventure travel, but also take advantage of all these Bonvoy points I have. Anyone have any recs for great properties there?
Lyft vs uber for rewards? Company politics removed, which has a better rewards system? Flying United not delta FYI and have enjoyed the $5 uber cash every 500 points

Hi Fishes.. what do yoiu recommend? Assurance in Deloitte USI or Financial Due Diligence in KPMG Global Services?
Anyone with Air Canada miles (not sure if United Miles work too) want to barter for a ticket? Southwest, Delta miles, or cash? Austin to Toronto: 12/25 or 26 to 1/2 or 1/3. Thanks in advance.
Lost status on American - now I can't even go same day standby unless I pay $75? Is there a way to status match, do a challenge, or buy status? I don't care about other perks but no standby? 😭

Does National car rental have dedicated areas for Exec Elite to choose own vehicle like the President’s Circle on Hertz? Our firm got rid of Hertz so doing status match with National.
Mileage run booked! To Detroit, to check out the Henry Ford Museum and ford factory tour. Restaurant suggestions anyone?
Nothing reminds me why I only fly Delta like flying American. A serious and heartfelt apology to those of you who endure this regularly...
Hmm... keep my whole Sunday and fly Spirit Monday morning? Or give up and fly American Sunday night?
How many of you stay in corporate apts vs hotels? Just signed a corporate apt lease in a modern luxury building with great amenities. Same airfare and meal policy. Benefits outweigh losing the points?
How happy are you with your individual team's culture? I was drinking the kool aid until recently and I realized the toxicity within my org - even if my team in MTV thinks I do a kick ass job, my manager controls my rating and makes it seem like I don't do enough.
Hi anyone take part in the associate cloud developer program? I have an interview today with a recruiter and wanted to know a bit more about the role
I've been in the world of consulting for several years; amazed at how much more analysts and others feel the need to be constantly utilized. Seeing posts about how holidays impact the metric (cont'd)
Can we not call it TrumpCare or ObamaCare and just call it the Affordable Care Act like it should have been from day one. Stop playing politics with healthcare. People die from this BS.
When will the uscis offices reopen for gc interviews?? Looks likw june 4 opening is for asylum non emergency
Looking to leave the US for a year to live out my dream of building and leading the analytics dpt of an African soccer team. I would do this 1 year before applying to MBA programs. Smart or dumb move?
Which McKinsey office is bigger - LA or SF? Especially for operations/implementation practice. Is there any culture difference?
Any insight into Uber’s, Sales Strategy & Ops role interview? What happens in the case presentation etc.? TIA!
Which career path will u choose for yourself and why? Options - 1) CXO of large tech co., like FAANG 2) partner with b4/mbb 3) CXO of a unicorn - like stripe or what Facebook was in 2006/2007, with a huge upside when it goes public 4) start a company of ur own that has a decent shot of becoming successful. All the options will make u rich and yes u only have 4 options.
How is everyone with COVID-19 symptoms feeling today? I’m in week 3 and still fatigued and coughing, smell is back!
Is it even worth moving forward with interviews if the recruiter said “most people in this company don’t get paid what you’re expecting” after we discussed salary expectations?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Now that tips + gov fees are baked into Uber/Lyft/Food delivery apps, I’ve become much healthier and learned to cook this year! Bless all of you still in consulting who get more points cause of this though.
Deloitte is giving mid-year hikes. Is this also happening at other consulting firms, big 4? EY PWC KPMG Accenture
Is networking still key as an experienced hire? Networking was really helpful when I was applying to consulting as a student, because of the clear recruitment cycle most firms followed. Now that I’m looking to switch to industry, I’m looking at specific roles / depts at specific companies. Companies often seem to want to fill these roles quickly so no time to network, and on networking calls people can’t help as much if you are targeting a specific dept. any thoughts?
